To Write Love on Her Arms

Many people might be familiar with Post Secret, the online community that is updated every Sunday with secrets from around the world. The USD PostSecret club provides the same outlet for students. Last year, students were invited to submit their secrets in boxes located in La Paloma, Aromas, Bert's Bistro, Copley Library, and Missions Café; it is also possible to create and submit an anonymous secret online.  While the boxes will not be out again until after the To Write Love On Her Arms event on November 10th, students are still encouraged to submit their secrets anonymously through the USD PostSecret website. The mission of this relatively new club is to help reduce the stigma of mental health issues on campus while also strengthening the bond of USD community members.

For a second time this year, USD PostSecret Club invites To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA), a non-profit organization whose mission is “dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide” to USD. Founder Jamie Tworkowski and musician Noah Gunderson, will join USD on November 10th in the Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice theatre to share the TWLOHA mission and vision.

Brandon Newton, Center for Health and Wellness Promotion (CHWP) student employee helped coordinate the event in the spring and is very excited for TWLOHA to return this Fall. "I loved seeing so many people that I didn't know all come together to support those who feel lost and alone. I think our community did a great job of showing that people really do care, and this year the feeling should be even more prevalent." This is an event everyone will want to attend and as the USD PostSecret Club founding president, Alexandra Carone shared. “It provides an opportunity for the public and the USD community to connect over some powerful things, things we can all relate to; suffering, love and hope."
